    I recently got a 15 in G4 Aluminum Powerbook 1.25 Ghz, off of eBay. It was broken when I bought it and was able to nurse it back to health. My only issues are I need an Airport Extreme card, a new battery, and most of all a better LCD screen. The current one is OK, but it is a little dim. I've been surfing and finding replacement screens at prices between $200-$400 dollars. YIKES! Is there anywhere I can get inexpensive parts? Anyone have any broken PB's to sell?

    Thanks

    Screens are expensive. Look on eBay for a PowerBook with a shot logic board and transplant the pieces from that.

    eBay will guarantee you a place to get a screen, but it might be worth a shot to try Craigslist, too.
